Diabetic Foot Care
Diabetes is a chronic illness caused by the body’s inability to properly use or manufacture insulin. Over 16 million people in the United States live with diabetes and nearly a million more are diagnosed each year. Long term effects of uncontrolled diabetes include damage to vital organs and limb amputation. However, regular care provided by both physicians and podiatrists, individuals can lead long and healthy lives.
Being the largest bone in the foot and home to a large network of tendons, the heel can be host to several foot related problems. Heel pain has several causes, but is typically the result of ones gait, or walk, placing a significant amount of stress on the heel bone. Other causes may include heel spurs or tendonitis. Heel pain can range from mild to debilitating.
Ingrown Toe Nail
Ingrown toenails are a common nail impairment caused when the nail begins to dig painfully into the toe. This may cause pain, redness, and swelling. In severe cases, ingrown toenails can be treated by a podiatrist. These are frequently caused by ill-fitting shoes, foot injuries, or heredity. Ingrown toenails when coupled with diabetes should be closely monitored to prevent any complications.
Fungal Toe Nail
Toenail fungus may be present for years before being diagnosed, because it has not caused any pain previously. This condition is often characterized by a darkening of the toenails color and can be accompanied by a foul smell. Toenail fungus is caused by fungi living underneath the toenail and can easily be spread to other toes, or in some cases fingers.
